Hominy gives this soup an unmistakable chewy texture and subtle corny flavor that pairs perfectly with Southwestern seasonings. The brothy base is enhanced with chili powder, cumin, oregano, and garlic to set the stage for hominy, pinto beans, and bell pepper, which give this dish hunger-busting substance. A dollop of homemade Tofu Sour Cream adds a delicious tangy element to each serving, while creamy avocado and fresh cilantro round out the Mexican-inspired flavor profile. If you like it spicy, feel free to add a drizzle of your favorite hot sauce before slurping down this irresistible hominy soup! 

Tip: If you can’t find the yellow hominy, then white hominy works just as well.
